November Member of the Month Spotlight – Amy Zamieroski
I am so excited to announce that the November Member of the Month is Amy Zamieroski!
Amy has been with Forever Fit SCV for almost 4 years now and she’s been consistently killin’ it since Day 1! Amy came to us because she was tired of being another face in the crowd at the ‘big box gyms’ and has truly thrived during her time with us.
Amy is a people person; one of the warmest, sweetest, most caring people you will ever meet! She really thrives with the support of her friends and family, and that’s one of the reasons she’s been SO SUCCESSFUL at Forever Fit SCV. She originally came in with her best friend Kelley, and has made so many more lasting friendships, which keeps her excited to train on a daily basis.
Amy has had her share of obstacles, namely pre-existing ‘bad knees’. She’s worked hard to correct these issues and continues to make progress every single day. She one of the most positive people I know and understands that Fitness is Forever and not something you can work on for a week and be set for the rest of your life. She has been, and continues to be, a positive role model for her family and is the ‘fun mom’ we’d all love to have!
And don’t get me started on how giving Amy is! She has been volunteering for years and teaching Sunday school at her church, which takes way more time and patience than most of us are comfortable with. But Amy does it willingly and loves shaping the minds of our youth!
We are so proud of what Amy continues to accomplish and are so happy to be with her on her journey. We were able to able to catch up with Amy to find out how and why she’s been so successful and here’s what she had to say:
Craig: When did you start training at Forever Fit SCV?
Amy: I had been working out at one of the larger gyms in the area, and was not happy. Everything from the constantly broken machines to the bad music they played bothered me. When I heard about Forever Fit SCV, I was eager for the change. After the first class, I knew that I had found exactly what I’d been looking for. In one word, Forever Fit is FUN! Not a lot of people can say that about where they workout. Craig is simply the best coach …ever! The community there is so friendly and happy. The workouts are challenging and they regularly change, so no boredom. I don’t understand why anyone would waste their time and money working out anywhere else!
Craig: What has made you so successful at Forever Fit SCV?
Amy: I’m happy there so I want to go. There are very few mornings that I feel like I’m dragging myself to the gym. I am smiling and laughing 90% of the time that I am there! Also, Craig is a great motivator. He teaches me ways to get around any body pains I may have that day, and he is always encouraging. I don’t think I’ve ever heard him speak a negative word.
Craig: What is the biggest obstacle you have had to overcome during your fitness transformation?
Amy: I have bad knees. When I was at my previous gym, nobody really cared if I did the moves right or not. Now, I am watched over and corrected or complimented all the time. Craig is always giving me different alternatives if my knees hurt, as well as different exercises to try that will strengthen my knees to help alleviate the pain. Right now, I’m practically pain free! And my squat looks pretty darn good!!
Craig: What advice would you offer to others who are just starting out on their fitness journey or have hit a road-block?
Amy: Get up, put your pants on, and get your booty to Forever Fit. It will change your life!
Craig: What drives you to ‘KEEP MAKIN’ CHANGES’?
Amy: My age! I don’t want to grow old and be one of those people who can’t pick up a pencil they’ve dropped on the floor, who grunt and groan every time they get out of the chair, who is winded when they climb a flight of stairs, who can’t go for a bike ride, etc. etc. That will never be me! The variety of moves Craig challenges us with every week helps to keep every muscle in my body strong. I love that feeling! And it doesn’t come in a bottle. I have to work for it. At the end of the day, it is up to me to get the job done, but the support, the environment, the challenges, and the community of Forever Fit SCV are exactly what I need to help me be my best. Thank you Forever Fit!!
KEEP MAKIN’ CHANGES Amy!!!
